|Wonderful art in the largest fair I have even seen. In fact, technically, it's a collection of four art fairs all taking place at the same time, all over this little college town near Detroit.|
After the failure to reach Hell, I ended up spending much more
time than anticipated in Ann Arbor, so I had plenty of time to visit
the thousand or so stands found in there.
I saw all kinds of
crafts and fairs, from jewelry to painting, from tissue printing to
pottery, from sketches to heavy metal sculptures. There were also
many stands devoted to photography and those were that caught my
attention the most.
I loved all photo exhibits, showing images
printed on all kinds of media. From regular to handmade papers,
canvas, to metal and glass or acrylic. As a non-interested buyer, I
found the prices a bit steep. But as a potential seller soon of such
stuff, I was more than pleased with those prices. It's all a matter
There were also non-artistic booths, selling
various items and many of those other vendors had a presence in each
of the four fairs. These items ranged from food and beverages of
course, to hats, clothes, newspaper subscriptions, etc.
walking for over an hour and a half in the heat, I found a spot
inside the university to cool down. Since it had Wi-Fi, I checked my
emails and wrote a bit, catching up some of my blog backlog.
then resumed my visit of the fairs before reaching the train station
to return to Detroit. There, I learned my train (coming from
Chicago) had almost a 3-hours delay. Was I upset? No, I saw there
an opportunity to write more :-)
The more I get to know him,
the more I like my new zen-self.
